A boiling day in Athens, Greece. Stephanos, the eldest brother, is working out, while his mother is planning on a day-out.
After another intense fight between them, Stephanos is left alone to take care of his two younger siblings and Lucy, their family dog. Lucy is sick.
The day goes by smoothly with summery laziness, among pizza boxes, adolescent flirt and a phone that remains unanswered.
What will dramatically change their day is Lucy’s death. Yet, more changes are in store for the family , and they will be revealed to them, when Stephanos picks up the phone. It was the last care-free day of their lives.
Aθήνα, καλοκαίρι. Μετά από καβγά με τη μάνα του, ο Στέφανος κλείνει τη ραπ και μένει μόνος στο σπίτι με τα αδέρφια του και το άρρωστο σκυλί τους, τη Λούση. Κανείς τους δεν ξέρει ακόμη ότι πρόκειται για την τελευταία, ανάλαφρη μέρα της ζωης τους. Ηδη όλα έχουν αλλάξει.
